We took our Peace Corps volunteer son here for a few days' break and were delighted with Terraco. There are spectacular views of the ocean, full breakfast, exquisitely decorated rooms -- each with its own particular take on Indian and African art.

I can't imagine a better place to stay on Ilha de Mozambique. This beautifully restored historic building offers wonderful rooms with unique decor in every space -- lots of little nooks and places to chill out.

Isa and Sergio, the owners, have done a wonderful job... More

The Terraço das Quitandas holds an indisputed first place in sleeping matters on Ilha de Mozambique. Although it is still making a name for itself, it has some strong arguments: a great location near the fort and the palace, a tasteful decoration mainly from eastern inspiration and 6 beatiful rooms, each one different from the other (the patio one is...
